      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players

      MP: $35.60 (142.4 bb) 45/33/2.4/8.9/22/237
      CO: $26.46 (105.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $25 (100 bb) 17/13/2.0/7.1/18/48
      SB: $19.37 (77.5 bb) 17/0/1.3/0.0/20/84
      BB: $37.75 (151 bb) 48/17/1.8/0.0/29/44

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with J Q
      MP calls $0.25, CO folds, Hero raises to $1, SB calls $0.90, BB calls $0.75, MP calls $0.75

      Flop: ($4) Q T 8 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP checks, Hero checks

      With 2 fish in the hand and a draw heavy board I decide to just give up my hand, check flop and fold to any bet on the river unless I hit a strong hand.

      Turn: ($4) 2 (4 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, MP bets $3, Hero folds, SB calls $3, BB folds

      Time to give up.

      this isn´t omaha where tp is often worthless that drawy board. Holdem you have quite strong hand you should definitely bet flop for value. VPIP 45/48% players would call your flop bet with any pair/any draw and if you want you can always go to pot control on the turn.

      As played I would likely call turn, since I think MP valuebetting range is worst than our tp and he can always semibluff his flushdraw

      best regards,
